Most information on Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has been left in obscurity since the initial teaser. While we’ll likely see more at E3 next month, we have gotten a bit of info on the game’s soundtrack, courtesy of composer Yasunori Mitsuda. On his Twitter (as translated by Attack of the Fanboy), Mitsuda has been revealing details about the soundtrack recording.

Mitsuda has often been working until 5 AM in the morning, primarily with the Bratislava Symphony Choir, who he praises extensively for their work. Of even higher renown, however, is the Irish choral ensemble Anúna, whose recording and mixing of music is apparently so good that Mitsuda has been brought to tears. While this sounds somewhat maudlin, the author of this very article believes wholeheartedly that Mitsuda is justified, given that I could not make it past the title screen in the original Xenoblade without sobbing.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 releases later this year. Stay wired for info in the future, including details on plot, gameplay, and more.
